"Thats where the name comes from. This box set features an interesting collection of European bands all loosely fitting into the PsychoBilly genre that flourished on that Continent from the late eighties through the mid nineties. Such favorites as the Guana Bats, King Kurt, Demented Are Go, and the Meteors are featured with both live and studio tracks that make up the total number of 60 songs included on the three discs. The bands here cover the entire spectrum of the genre which ranged from straight up american inspired rockabilly to more avant garde acts such as Theatre of Hate who are reminiscent of an early eighties post punk(new wave)act. For such a low, low price you can't go wrong here and you may just fall in love with some of the songs found on this interesting box set."
How Psychobilly should be - European style!

"For anybody who believes that Psychobilly originated in the USA then please by this box set! Granted that not every song is brilliant but with great bands from the UK such as Frantic Flintstones, Meteors, King Kurt & Long Tall Texans you can't go wrong. Also features one of the best every Psychobilly bands from Holland - Batmobile! Most of this stuff was recorded mid to late 80's so bands like Mad Sin and Nekromantix (who are two great bands in their own right) are not featured on this. Best song is Johnny Cynic by Shark Bait - perfect Psychobilly song. Great value for money and a good history lesson for anyone who thinks Reverend Horton Heat are a psychobilly band. Forget Betty Page, My baby is a hot rod & attitude - by this and listen to how it's really done!"
Essential psychobilly listening

"I got this box set for Christmas 2002, and it still finds it's way into my cd rotation at least once a week. It has many of the best names in psychobilly and rockabilly. Shadow Crypt by Demented Are Go was a great inclusion, as well as all the Deltas and Frantic Flintstones tracks. The Meteors are not well represented here, but that's probably because anyone who's into psychobilly has probably already listened to them to death. An inclusion of such bands as Mad Sin, the Klinonz, or the Necromantix would have the been the only way to make this compilation better. This is the best psychobilly compilation I have heard."
